Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib on Tuesday said digital survey of around 81,209 square kilo meters land had so far been carried out that revealed encroachment of some 824,210 acres of state land worth Rs 3 trillion in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.

“Around 88 per cent work on [digitalization of] total land [record] in Punjab, KP and Balochistan has been completed.

Flanked by Special Assistant to the Prime Minster on Capital Development Authority, Ali Nawaz Awan, Farrukh said out of the total encroached land, around 675,615 acres were meant to grow forests, but occupied illegally by illegal occupants allegedly in connivance with certain people of previous governments.—APP
